The annual event has been organized for four consecutive years, with over 30 different lecturers from 11 countries, followed by exhibitions and movie screenings. The first Days of Architecture was organized in 2008 by a group of students, wishing to get to know the experience of local architects working in architectural practice. In 2009, Days of Architecture hosted lecturers from other schools, related to architecture, who spoke about the connection between architecture and artistic practices. In 2010, the guest lecturers were architects and critics from Croatia, who presented their projects and experiences, many of which have received worldwide recognition. In 2011, various views on architecture were presented by Bosnian-Herzegovinian architects, who had built their career in foreign countries, as well as a few foreign architects.
Days of Architecture 2012 will be held in Art Cinema Kriterion, Ars Aevi Depot and Collegium Artisticum Gallery. The project coordinator of the Days of Architecture 2012 is NGO LIFT – spatial initiatives, within the network of a few organizations (Architects Association in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Association of Architecture Students, Sarajevo Center for Contemporary Art, Sarajevo Green Design).
